Help the kilos wont come off

Hi all
I havent been to the castle yet, and my doctor wants me under 100Kg before the op which is in 3 1/2 weeks. Im now 102.4 and I've plateaued dieting so I decided to go to the gym and use the treadmill doing 40min a day about 2km an hr which is all I can handle since Im on a disability pension because of bad joints.
Now i find the kilos arent coming off either way. Am I panicking too soon? Ive lost 10kilos since Jan. He wants me closer too 90kg but I think he's asking toooo much. Im doing my best.
Any suggestions would be great

Chelle~~ Changing your exercise routine a bit can help to break through a plateau, also adjusting your diet also can be helpful. If you've been eating the same type of foods for a while to lose, your body just may need a slight change. Most of us will have the same 10 meals repeated over and over and once in a while we may need a little variation to wake up the body a little and get things moving again.(downward of course...LOL) I know this is really frustrating when you are working so hard and doing everything right but getting little or no results, but hang in there you *will* start losing again. Even if you don't make it in the alloted time your Dr. wants you to, you can still be proud of yourself you are trying real hard and deserve to be proud!!! You are doing a great job!!!!

Take Care, Dawn

You don't say quite what you're doing so here's some thoughts (mostly gleaned from Prevention magazine )

Make sure you drink 8 glasses of water a day or more.
Make sure your sodium is low.
Eat 5-9 veggies and fruit a day.
Avoid high glycemic carbs--especially in a meal that's more than 500 calories.
Divide your calories up into small meals throughout the day.
Do your exercise early in the morning (revs up metabolism all through the day)
Lift weights.

Most of these help with either water retention or metabolism and might make a difference.

And as Dawn says just shake it up. Your body wants to conserve reserves, especially if you make it think there's a famine going on.

You're doing great. Don't get down on yourself.

Oh, and do remind the surgeon of your bad joints--the position they put you in is bad. And if you can, you might ask about keeping your cervix--that way they won't be tempted to put you in the worst position for backs and joints.

Hope some of these help.
